Microneedling, also known as collagen-induction therapy, is a minimally invasive, medical grade cosmetic procedure using tiny sterile needles to penetrate the skin and promote collagen and elastin production under the skin surface. As medical professionals, we are able to go deeper than estheticians and truly initiate the cascade of wound healing that creates tighter, firmer skin. Microneedling in Knoxville and Nashville also treats scarring, acne scarring, hair loss, hyperpigmentation, large pores, sun damage, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, and more. The appointment lasts about 45 minutes and you can return to your day after, although you might be a little red.
When adding PRP (platelet rich plasma) to the microneedling session, the client’s blood is drawn, spun down to separate out the platelet rich plasma, and then used as a serum to microneedle into the skin. Exosomes are a similar process, except there is no blood draw, as these are plant based but pack the same, if not better punch. These options expedite the healing process as well as greatly enhance the effects of the treatment by inserting growth factors directly into the skin. All of this can be done in one of our medspa locations in Knoxville or Nashville or on the go in your home or wherever you can fit in a session!
